A new subline (if you can even call it that) based off the cutesy new Chibi Godzilla designs.

I do not want this to become a figure.

I don't think you understand. It's not that I don't just want to buy it. I do not want this abomination to exist on the face of this planet in any way.

Chibi Godzilla, Mothra, Ghidorah MMS are up for preorder on HLJ for July.

I do not care about HLJ as I live in Japan. I`m asking if there`s an official bandai newsletter that states exactly when something is on store shelves in japan, and when its announced.

I`ll get all the chibi poop and report back on it when I get my hands on it. The Chibi-Godzilla thing is just Toho-Cinemas mascot and has existed for a few years now. Before each movie he sort of pops in. It`s not like it`s replacing Godzilla in any fashion.

So about a week ago I pulled the trigger and spent 98 bucks for that Shin Ghidorah figure on eBay

I then learned just today from a friend of mine that after the ride event closes at Universal Japan it'll probably be available at the Godzilla Store, and thus be much cheaper.

Needless to say, mistakes have been made.

Hmmm thanks for the info, I should still try to go to the damn thing.

I`m pretty sure shipping is Japan only, but it means the figure will be more widely available and isn`t just an exclusive.

Did you bother to read the description? The seller answers all of your questions quite clearly.

So my Universal Japan Ghidorah just came in the mail, and man does he look good. The promotional pictures don't do him justice. The subtle applications of silver really make him pop in the right light, and the detail on his scales is absolutely sublime. He's a little small (about 6 inches exactly from his middle head, whereas I prefer my Ghidorahs to be a tad bigger to scale with the 6 inch Godzilla's), but that's okay.

Is he worth 98 dollars? Well...that's up to you.

It's been a while, recently got back into Godzilla collecting. Just dug out all my MMS figures, and now I'm considering un-tagging them, since they're sort of getting in the way of display, etc. Do you guys keep yours with the tags on?
